Fuzzy Multi-channel Clustering with Individualized Spatial Priors for Segmenting Brain Lesions and Infarcts

Abstract

Quantitative analysis of brain lesions and ischemic infarcts is becoming very important due to their association with cardiovascular disease and normal aging. In this paper, we present a semi-supervised segmentation methodology that detects and classifies cerebrovascular disease in multi-channel magnetic resonance (MR) images. The method combines intensity based fuzzy c-means (FCM) segmentation with spatial probability maps calculated from a normative set of images from healthy individuals. Unlike common FCM-based methods which segment only healthy tissue, we have extended the fuzzy segmentation to include patient-specific spatial priors for both pathological conditions (lesions and infarcts). These priors are calculated by estimating the statistical voxel-wise variation of the healthy anatomy, and identifying abnormalities as deviations from normality. False detection is reduced by knowledge-based rules. Assessment on a population of 47 patients from different imaging sites illustrates the potential of the proposed method in segmenting both hyperintense lesions and necrotic infarcts.
